After years of frustration, the Tevatron collider at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory is running well. Researchers say they have a shot at spotting the Higgs boson--if there9s time. (Read more.)

Machine learning for event selection in high energy physics
TLDR
A new approach that uses stochastic optimization techniques to directly search for selectors that maximize either the precision of top quark mass measurements or the sensitivity to the presence of the Higgs boson is presented, and empirical results confirm that stochastically optimized selectors result in substantially better analyses.

Stochastic Optimization for Collision Selection in High Energy Physics
TLDR
A new approach that uses stochastic optimization techniques to directly search for selectors that minimize statistical uncertainty in the top quark mass measurement is presented, confirming that stochastically optimized selectors have much smaller uncertainty. Expand
Millikan Award Lecture, 2006: Physics For All
We physics teachers must broaden our focus from physics for physicists and other scientists to physics for all. The reason, as the American Association for the Advancement of Science puts it, is thatExpand
